Subject: graduating dentist ditty or poem help needed
A good friend's daughter is graduating this weekend a year early from dental school. She will be adding Dr. to her name!!! She is 26 and looks 16 and is barely 5 ft tall. Don't know how she is going to reach everything. HAHA. I would like to make her a "special graduation card" relating to the "dentist" but haven't been able to find any graphics/clip art that I thought would work. I even thought of using the doctor symbol but wondering if it is the same for a dentist as a doctor. Is there someone out there who could help me with a little poem or ditty for the card and I'm open to ALL and ANY suggestions!!!! Thanks to anyone who can help me in advance.

Can't help you with a poem, no talent there either. tee-hee But I do know that the dental caduceus is different from the medical doctor caduceus. The dental caduceus has a "D" on the symbol. Hope this helps.

Hope this helps
Do letters really matter
I must say they do
as now it's DR
no Miss or Ms for you.
Now you're all grown up
though you look so young
congratulations on graduation
your dentist career's begun.

Great poem, Sue! : )
Dixie, if she is a good sport about her height, it might be cute to purchase or make a small wooden step (for her to use to reach the patients in the chair!) and paint it with the caduceus and her name "Dr. ________". [I know that dental chairs raise and lower and all that, but it would just be a funny little gift for her]
BTW, I'm a WV girl, too! : )

Thanks to everyone for their ideas and graphics and Sue, again you conveyed the perfect words in the poem. I wish I had 1/100 of your talent in that area. Thanks so much!!!!
